Emergency payments: local crisis and prevention fund
Get help if you can't afford the basics like food, gas, electricity and household goods.
We can give you emergency payments, mainly for essentials like food, gas and electricity. You won't have to pay this back.
We also help with household goods, for people or families that can’t meet basic living requirements, or who need support to stay in the community.
